2016 Accomplishments

Yearend Newsletter 2016:

Dear NJCEE Partners,

Happy New Year. Thank you once again for your generous support in 2016. The New Jersey Council for Economic Education continues to grow its impact on the NJ education landscape through enhanced partnerships and an expanding educator network.

In 2016, NJCEE delivered professional development training to 350 New Jersey K-12 teachers who then introduced our resources to over 20,000 students in districts across the state. This summer, in response to growing demand from our urban elementary school teachers, we launched our “Never Too Young” curriculum in Passaic, NJ. A video of the program in action can be viewed here.

We have several teacher workshops already scheduled for 2017, thanks once again to generous grants from Blackrock, OceanFirst Bank and Capital Group. Please visit our website, www.njeconomics.org, to see our professional development calendar.

I would like to welcome Stockton University as NJCEE’s first university-based Center for Financial Literacy. Through its Southern Regional Institute and Educational Technology Training Center, the Council will more effectively deliver professional development sessions to teachers in South Jersey.

We, of course, look forward to another year of engaging EconExchange evenings. Our wonderful 2016 guests: Consuelo Mack, Burton Malkiel, Bill Wilby, Richard Bernstein and Alan Murray set a new high watermark for the level of economic discourse.

Wishing you all the best in 2017. We truly appreciate your support as we remain committed to bringing economic and personal finance education to every K-12 student in New Jersey.

Best Regards,

Joe DiFiglia
